Heat unveil alternate court for Vice Nights
The Miami Heat are going all out in their Vice campaign with an alternate court to match their “Vice Nights” City Edition uniform. Unlike the previous season when the Heat released the white version, the court didn’t match the team’s jersey. Not so this year.

When asked about the alternate court, Heat superstar Dwyane Wade was just as excited as any fan.
“That’s the coolest thing,” Wade told the Miami Herald. “It’s not just the jersey, but to be able to go all in, all the way around. That makes it even more of a special night, when we get the opportunity to get on the court. I think it’s going to bring some excitement to even the players. So it will be cool to the fans, definitely, to come in and feel a different environment, a different vibe.”
According to the official press release:
“HEAT fans are encouraged to come to AmericanAirlines Arena for the Vice Nights Midnight Madness event, which will begin at midnight on Thursday, for their chance to be among the first to get their hands on a Vice Nights jersey and merchandise, and to experience other surprise Vice Nights activations happening exclusively at the Arena.”
The team also launched a special website to get fans even more excited. Visit HEAT.com/ViceNights for more information on the Vice Nights campaign.
